Windows 7: ebay recursive login problem

Thanks. Creating a new user account seems like a drastic measure. I have emailed ebay for help with this as the problem is perculiar to ebay and ie8.

One thing which I have noticed which may be useful is that ebay is keeping me logged in. I can access other areas of the site, forums, my selling items etc, but when I go to view the summary page I am asked to sign in over and over again.

I tried signing in under another account and the same thing happens, BUT, when I then go to other parts of ebay, (forums, selling items etc) I find myself signed in under this second account.

Something is clearly broken somewhere. It seems that I am in fact able to sign in, but I am unable to see anything beyong the sign in page, if that make sense.

PS. Have tried ALL steps above. nada.

Although, you know we have tried, I feel it is a cookie. That is why I suggested a new account. You go in, and you have to sign in again and get new cookies etc. Try the guest account if you do not want to make a new one. Just once to see.

recurring login problems

I have a new laptop with W7. I too have problems logging into various websites usin valid passwords through IE8. I also had problems with Chrome. I was successful with Firefox. I know this must be a settings issue in IE7, since Chrome also does the same. Why Firefox works i do not know but would love some advice from someone who understands this strange new W7. I like it in many ways but there are other features that make me crazy!

Mr. Nosebleed is not crazy. It's the machine! I even set up new passwords with the companies and they failed also. Only Firefox enabled me to log in.

Help us Microsoft!

I also have login issues with W7

I have the same issues on a new notebook with W7 and IE8. You are not crazy.

I had these issues with several sites and valid passwords, kicking me back to the login page again. I installed Chrome and same problem. Finally I installed Firefox and it worked.

It must be a W7 issue since two browsers did the same. Somehow Firefox avoids the trap.

Any help from you guys at Microsoft?

Also, the hover/click is making me nuts and I can't igure out how to turn it off. Takes me places I don't want to go!
Thanks.

Everyone who has had trouble with a website try this. In an administrators account in cmd type
ipconfig /flushdns Let me know the results


Type cmd in search to get that command
